This is insane! He could be the first NBA Legend/Player to win an Oscar. WOW. Crossed fingers for this masterpiece shortfilm!

"Dear Basketball," a short film by retired Los Angeles Lakers great Kobe Bryant and veteran Disney animator Glen Keane, has been nominated for an Academy Award.

The film was one of five nominated in the animated short category on Tuesday.

Bryant tweeted that he was honored the film was nominated.

 

What?? This is beyond the realm of imagination. It means so much that the @TheAcademy deemed #DearBasketball worthy of contention. Thanks to the genius of @GlenKeanePrd & John Williams for taking my poem to this level. It's an honor to be on this team. #OscarNoms

Can't wait for the ESPN graphic comparing Kobe to MJ or Lebron and having the Oscar category.

Does this have a legit shot or was this just a nomination to acknowledge diversity? It’s still cool good luck to Kobe.
